    Solid phone

    This phone took a little getting used to. First, it is a little smaller than the Samsung it replaced. Second, the updated OS is just different enough that it, also, takes a bit of getting used to. Lots of nice features. After a month still checking things out and have gotten used to the new size, which isn’t too bad. In fact, it does fit better in my pocket. Looking forward to many years of OS upgrades, the Samsung was already 3 1/2 years old and not getting upgrades so was a little buggy. We plan on keeping these for a long time and the sale price was a bonus.

    Fantastic phone with great AI features that Work!

    I don’t buy to end phones, not when released anyway. There are newer versions of the pixel but not at this price!The pixel eight pulled information from my old phone effortlessly.Promised AI features work. I’ve attached two pics. With AI help one of my cats was removed. User is given several options of results.Learning a new phone is always a bit of a challenge. However, this phone is super easy. Works great. Display is considerably better than prior phones. I’ve just begun to check out the phone, important that others hear how well made this phone is.Ronald

    MKBHD 2023 phone of the year

    Got my pixel 8 during black friday sale and really loving the phone. I refer to MKBHD review before buying and he said that this is a good phone and I dont regret buying it. The pixel 8 have a really good camera, good software experience and with 7 years of update, this phone is really check all the box for me. Battery life also quite good since I can get 5+ hours of SOT, enough for me to go through my day. Placed my order on November 27th from US then my phone safely arrive on December 4th at Malaysia using amazon priority shipping. So far good buyer experience.

    Great phone

    I really like this Pixel 8. I had heard about Pixels before, but I had never before tried them. It has been a great surprise with the brightness of the screen, the processor, and Even with the battery. It has also a Nice camera , with natural colors on the pictures.

    Good value

    I was able to get the bundle Pixel 8 256 with wireless earbuds for around $750 I think. I did pre-order it. The battery is good. It will last more than 12 hours that is with me actively using it. Listening to YouTube, playing Pokemon Go at the same time or YouTube and Dominion and chatting. It is taking time to adjust to the size my old phone was a Pixel XL 4. The speakers are a bit subpar. Overall I would recommend this phone.

    Would Restart On It’s Own 5-8 Times Per Day

    I ended up returning this phone because it kept constantly restarting everyday five to eight times per day without me prompting it to do so. Also, the OS was glitchy when flipping between multiple pages on a browser and would occasionally just freeze up for 20 to 30 seconds as it processed. I really thought the larger RAM and new tech would be worth the purchase but I found myself wishing I bought the pixel 7 or 6 instead. Best way it redeems itself is in the extended update guarantee of 7 years. We’ll see if Google updates in the future fix any of these problems.

    Love it – BUT Battery not good so far

    I love pixel experience. So far this is the best pixel I have had (coming from pixel 2 xl, 4a and 6).1) I love the size of this phone, that is the primary reason of why I upgrade.2) Pixel UI is great and very intelligent3) Camera even better than beforeBUT battery has been bad so far, I have used it for 5 days, but never get to the end of the day without charging it again. (I hope this gets better with time)

    Not as good as my last pixel

    The screen has a curve around the edges that makes it hard to keep a screen protector on without bubbles. There are times when it does not respond when I’m trying to reply to a message or when opening an email. I have to restart the phone in order to correct this issue. I like that there will be 7 years of updates on this phone. I just hope it lasts that long.

    Pixel 8 128GB, Bosst Infinite

    Bought this to get the latest cellular modem devices, as well as the extended security update support. I also wanted a newer phone with better battery capacity. I also purchased an Otterbox case. My service is Boost Infinite.I upgraded from an unlocked Pixel 4a5g to the Pixel 8 128GB.Pros:- Seamless transfer from my Pixel 4a5g via wifi.- Seamless transfer of service via SIM transfer from Pixel 4a5g, using the Boost app.- Gets 5G UC in North SF Bay Area. 5G is working fine in more densely populated areas.- Battery life is good, without battery saver. I do not game or watch tons of videos.- Front fingerprint reader works well with left or right thumb, so I find that I don’t miss the rear fingerprint reader on the 4a5g.Cons:- Battery saver shuts off 5G. However, 4G LTE is very adequate at around 180 MbpS in my service area.- Larger battery and/or camera update means Google had to make the camera protrude from the back.- This device may feel too heavy and thick for some.

    Google es Google

    He pasado por varios teléfonos en mi vida que tenían algunas cosas buenas y otras que no me convencían de todo, hasta que ví lo que hace Google y me pude permitir probarlo y no me arrepiento, voy 3 días con este teléfono y para mí ya es el mejor celular que he tenido nunca, camaras espectaculares, Android Puro es lo mejor que puede tener un teléfono y muchas cosas más, lo único que podría decir que no me gustó del todo es que solo tenga 27w de carga pero te terminas acostumbrando. SUPER RECOMENDADO

    Good Phone in unsupported 5G country

    This pixel 8 is good. It feels premium from the material used. The weight of the phone feels right and make it feels premium. The camera is good, producing natural color image. Although the battery is bad, you can buy a power bank with magsafe and a magsafe casing.

    Pixel 8 is the smallest phone google makes.

    Upgraded from a Pixel 6 and it’s been good, fixes chipset issues in the G1, has great battery life, and is a tad smaller. Should last a while longer with 7 years of updates too. Great phone, and Amazon has deals on used ones too. Great buy.

    Decent phone

    I have been a Motorola user my last three phones. The Pixel 8 has a better camera, but lacks the size, battery, and memory that the Edge was able to provide $200 cheaper. Not a bad phone, but definitely less bang for the buck. Hopefully the 7 years of updates makes it worth it.

    Fair phone

    Bought this one to replace my pixel 6a due to having facial recognition and a few more minor improvements. The cost of those minor improvements was real high as the screen in pixel 8 is very frequently unresponsive. I have to turn the screen off and on to make it start working again.Update: software updates improved everything. Not worth the change from 6a though

    New Pixel new problems…

    The Google Pixel 8 is a solid very very well built and very good looking device. My issue came with the tuning of the software. I lost track of how many times I’d go to open my YouTube app and it would freeze stop stutter just not open. Now this is a device where Google designed the phone designed the SOC designed the software and made the YouTube app and their own app wouldn’t function properly on the phone. Other apps suffered similarly. My point? At this stage 8th in the series no less, the jittery stumbling hiccuping software is just too much for me to put up with I mean it’s great that they are doing a better job with bug fixes and updates but for a brand new phone it’s performance out of the box was just not at an acceptable level. I’m sorry, but that’s lame and they need to do better. How can you control every aspect of a phone’s production and still produce a product whose software isn’t fully baked and tuned to perfection?

    A legit, non-AI honest review

    The only reason I bought this phone is for pure Android and the direct Google updates. Otherwise, I would have purchased something else. The quality is just not there and it can be glitchy. My Pixel 3A worked better. If I could have updated my 3A I would have never purchased this phone. It seems every new Pixel Google puts out gets cheaper and cheaper.

    Smooth Transition to a Another Great Android

    After switching from an IPhone to a LG v30 which I’ve had for 7 years, I was ready for a new phone. I remembered researching the Google Pixel a few years back and being super impressed with it, but my LG v30 was serving me just fine so I didn’t make the switch. I just purchased the Google Pixel 8. The transition was smooth and easy to do (I’m a 76 yr. old woman). I purchased the phone outright from Amazon so it was unlocked, I do work in a computer center so if I had questions, somone was here to help me. I really like this phone and am glad I made the switch. And the battery life is amazing!!

    Not Unlocked

    This phone was a pain in the butt to get set up. I was told multiple times that it was locked by a carrier, even though it was advertised as unlocked. After 2 straight days of working on it, I finally got it to work by changing the APN settings.This isn’t really the phones fault, though. I haven’t had much time to play with it after getting service on it, but it seems like a nice phone. Easy to use, great keyboard, but the battery does seem to drain faster than advertised.

    good small phone

    What I like of this phone is that is not a gigantic bulk in my pocket, is small and doesn’t weight as much as other phones these days. The camera takes pics with not much effort or extra things to learn about and the space included is pretty decent.The only thing I don’t like is that the Safety feature doesn’t work in my country, so, no point in starting that one anyway.

    Excelent Phone!

    This is a good and excelent phone! (So far so good with the almost 3 months of use). But I can’t deny a point: this phone is not for people who is going to use a lot the celular data. If you are not going to be able to chargle your phone easily, I can’t recomend you this phone. You’re going to use it over wifi most of the time? Enjoy this awesome phone!Maybe this problem can be optimiced with software updates, but it’s probably more a hardware related problem that’s going to be fixed in the upcoming pixels models

    I just got the phone, so can’t speak to how well it works yet. This is just a heads up that although the color is listed as “Hazel”, it’s actually a light gray. If I look at it long enough, I can see a faint greenish tint DEEP down, but if someone found this phone and was asked to describe it, they would say “gray”.

    Love it!

    I’ve owned many different phones. I really like this phone the best out of all the phones that I owned. I had a Google pixel 6A and I upgraded to an eight. Definitely has all the features I knew you didn’t. Everything works great on it, including the camera. It doesn’t have a bunch of unnecessary apps on it that you can’t remove like other phones that I’ve had in the past. Fingerprint scanner, faceless recognition and wireless charging all work great!

    In comparison with pixel 5: camera is better, big screen PWM, size is worse.

    I’ve been waiting a long time since the Pixel 5’s release to buy a new Pixel device.Good things:The camera is much better than in the Pixel 5, but it produces cooler tones. It seems like it needs more precise adjustments to match reality more closely. I want the colors in the photos to be exactly as I see them with my eyes.The promise of 7 years of updates and parts availability is impressive.Bad things:To my surprise, the screen uses PWM, as clearly shown by the pencil test. I really wish for the return of IPS screens. Honestly, these AMOLED screens have inferior contrast and suffer from PWM. My old LG G6 had a much better screen with better contrast and easier-to-read text.It’s good that it’s smaller than the 6-7 series, but it’s still larger, which is a drawback. Why can’t Google maintain the same size as iPhone and Samsung phones? Hey Google, people are buying their phones, just follow their lead – it’s not that daunting.The small, rounded screen edges are a concern. I’d like to buy a screen protector that doesn’t require UV glue. Could you make screens as flat as possible?BUGS: I use the 3-button navigation style, and the “recent apps” button stops working after a while. This issue occurs on both the Pixel 5 and Pixel 8 devices with the latest Android 14 + patches.

    Got hot quickly!

    This is a nice phone but it got hot really quickly and, at times, it was impossible to hold it. I did some trouble-shooting but no luck. The problem of the phone getting warm appears to be one that Google Pixel 8 suffers from. But since my phone got scorching hot – rather than just warm – I had to return it. I got a full refund shortly after the return. Great customer service with delivery, mode of return, and refund.

    A solid and truly smart phone, with some drawbacks here and there

    The Google Pixel 8’s a solid phone, being loaded with smart AI tools and features like call screening. Camera is solid, as expected with the Pixel line of phones, and you get a 6 month free trial of Google One, with 2 TB of storage. Build quality is good, although the glass isn’t matte like the Pixel 8 Pro. The speakers are very loud, and the screen is bright and visible in the sun.The fingerprint reader is very accurate, albeit a little slow compared to other readers. The face recognition is also good, to where you can use it to unlock banking apps and such, although taking off my glasses or dimming the lights causes it to not recognize me. It holds up very well though, with it staying locked when I held a picture of my face up to the camera.Out of the box, the battery drain is terrible on 5G UC (T-Mobile), to the point where it even impacted my charge times heavily. Change this to LTE, and the phone easily lasts you throughout the whole day, with around 6-8 hours of screen on time, even with the 120 hz refresh rate enabled. Turning off or limiting the always on display also helps in this case, since the Pixel 8 does not have an LTPO display like the Pixel 8 Pro, it only has a variable refresh rate display which goes from 120 to 60 hz.I haven’t had any problems with the software, other than a hiccup when I first setup the phone, and it has stayed smooth and reliable throughout my week or so of use.When I purchased this phone, it also came with Pixel Buds Pro for free, although they unfortunately don’t create a very good seal in my ears, no matter what ear tips I chose.

    Love this phone!

    Compared to the brands I’ve used before (LG, OnePlus, HTC, and Samsung) I prefer Google by a large margin. The only other brand that comes close is Samsung.The pixel 8 is an amazing phone and an excellent choice compared to the other phones in its proce range. It is a very good looking phone and very comfortable to use. The display is phenomenal compared to any other phone that I have used. The battery life is also pretty good but not the best I’ve had.If you’re thinking of upgrading the pixel 8 won’t let you down!

    Very nice smartphone

    As soon as this Pixel 8 touched my hands, I already liked it. The size was very nice, the smaller size fits my hands well. And it fits in my pocket much easier than the bigger Moto X I came from.The setup blew me away. As soon as I turned on the Pixel 8, and started the set up, my old phone immediately connected to transfer files and apps without my going to some app.The first thing I noticed was how responsive the screen is from my old phone. The fingerprint reader is on the front screen, but that is no issue with me. It seems to work fine.Everything about this phone is great. The camera is top notch. When I clicked the shutter, it takes a picture right now with no delay. The focus, clarity, and resolution, are very good. The 256 GBs of memory is huge too. There is no memory card slot, but you don’t need one.I was able to swap my sim card to the new phone, and voila’, up and running.Well done Google.

    Pretty solid all round

    Good enough for me for anything the only thing it’s missing is the fast charging like my old oneplus phone

    So easy!

    I like the color, size, ease of setup and transferring data. I upgraded from a Pixel 4a which I loved. Used it 3 years until the battery started acting up. I considered getting a Samsung S23 but I use Google search all the time and wanted it as available and ready as I’d had it. Plus I like Pixel phones, they are easy to navigate and don’t come with bloatware. This one is only slightly bigger than my 4A which is just what I wanted. Only irritant was my passwords did not transfer with my apps even with Google password manager. Maybe I did something wrong? I’m over 70 and tech challenged, Google Pixel has made it easy.

    Perfect size, same great features

    Absolutely love that this phone feesls much more comfortable in my hands than the pixel 6 which was a bit bigger. The back camera is even clearer, and the front camera is definitely and upgrade from the 6. This one has facial recognition and the fingerprint option is a lot easier, those were the only shortcomings I had with my previous phone. Google’s OS is so much fun!

    The iPhone of Androids

    Based on the reviews, I thought it was going to be a premium phone. It is very good, comfortable, and once you get used to it, it has one of the best interfaces. The rear camera is incredible, however, the selfie camera is bad, the images do not have very good quality. The AI ​​thing is very interesting and I like it. The battery is perfect, it always lasts me all day and when I go to sleep, by magic, it already needs to be charged. So, after a week, it adapts to your schedule and makes it a 10/10 battery. However, the screen sometimes freezes. This is something I don’t like, since it’s a new phone, I feel like this shouldn’t happen!

    Great Mid-Range Phone With a Superb Camera!

    I did a LOT of research on the latest Android smartphones before settling on one that had the best features for my budget. I REFUSE to pay $1000 or more for a quality smartphone; with that being said, I’ve had my share of cheap, low-budget smartphones, and you literally get what you pay for when you opt for an inexpensive budget smartphone: Hiccups and glitches galore. This time around, I decided to “upgrade” and get a phone that would last for more than two years without making me want to chuck it across the room every time it froze or glitched. I think the Google Pixel 8 phone will be one I will hold on to for a while, provided I don’t drop it hard enough to destroy it as I’ve done a couple of times with my low-budget phones, lol! Not only do I like the look, features, and quality of the Google Pixel 8, I absolutely LOVE the fact that it’s a fairly small phone, as smartphones go. I have small hands and didn’t want a large phone that is more difficult to hold on to while using, AND Pixel 8 fits comfortably in my pockets or a small purse. I also take a LOT of pics, and Google Pixel 8 has one of the best cameras around. Of course, price was indeed an issue for me, and I wanted a high quality phone without the high quality price–the Pixel 8 fits the bill perfectly. Although its cousin, the Pixel 8 Pro, is rated higher and has an even better camera, that extra “high quality” comes with a heftier price tag as well. Even though the Pixel 8 Pro is also priced below $1000, it’s still more than I was willing to pay at this point. I opted for the less expensive Pixel 8 (around $500) and thus far, I am very satisfied with my purchase. With the YEARS of updates promised, the mid-range price, and smaller size, I believe I’ve made a good investment. Hopefully, I will still feel the same beyond two years from now. So far, I recommend!!

    Great phone!

    I’m coming from a Pixel 5 which unfortunately got damaged. Over the years I’ve been hesitant to upgrade because phones are getting bigger/heavier, and the Pixel 5 had the perfect form factor. However, I was in need of a new phone right away and got this through overnight shipping. Here’s my experience using the 8 compared to the 5.PROS-The smoothest experience I’ve ever had transferring data to a new phone; within five minutes my 8 looked identical to my 5, including the home screen, apps, camera photos, etc.-Better speaker quality, making my Pixel 5 speakers sound “tinny” by comparison.-It fixed two software bugs that my Pixel 5 had (Always On Display not working, and camera lag when deleting/swiping through photos).-Face unlock is a nice, convenient new feature (for me) and works great.-The display is beautiful as always, and I get decent battery life.CONS-The fingerprint reader is finicky and usually takes 2-3 taps to get in. On the Pixel 5, the sensor is on the back and only needs 1 tap. Much prefer it on the back.Aside from that, I don’t have any major complaints. The Pixel 8 feels very much like the Pixel 5 with some minor changes here and there. I only wish it was a smaller phone in weight/size because I can’t text one-handed anymore. If Google ever releases another small one, I’d buy it in a heartbeat!

    Amazing camera with AI aid,but lacking battery

    This smartphone feels amazing in hands and coming from a 6.55″ block, it is like a day and night in weight and size. It fits very well my pockets. The screen is pretty smooth, Pixel UI is very clean and minimalistic, without all the nonsense and infinite options that characterize chinese Ui like Miui or ColorOs. Color otherwise is kind of dull, not vivid and there isn’t too much options to change. Camera is Amazing and I see why Pixels compete hand to hand with Iphone; my device basically saved our Christmas diner photo since the Iphone couldn’t so much back lighting while the Pixel got an outstanding photo with just one click. Everything feels smooth, especially at 120 Hz but even at 60, it feels greats. Google photo AI editor, magic eraser and noise eraser are amazing tools, I could even use magic editor to erase some numbers from an image for a University project. Now the bad parts about this phone: Chip isn’t the most efficient, sometimes it even gets hot easily with minimal tasks, and even worse when using LTE (not 5g since in my country that technology isn’t working). I can easily see the difference in battery health when using data instead wifi. without battery saver,this device will lasts like 4 or 5 hours. It is so underwhelming since this is the only way to e joy the 120 Hz refresh rate. With battery saver, things get better and you can accomplish like 6 to 8 hours, but by dimming the phone capabilities.finally the worst part of this phone is the lacking 27w to charge which basically take between 1.5 hours to 2. It is so disappointing that a 2023 Smartphone charges so slowly and with a horrible barrery management your battery depletes like water ins hands. Just to look at the screen You’ve already lost 1%. So I would recommended this device just to people who prioritizes camera over battery and performance and those who can live with a charger 24/7 (charger not included 🥴).

    Wow, I am super happy with my Pixel 8

    After 2 full months of use and plenty of hours enjoying this phone, I can say it has been one of the best purchases I’ve made in my life. I spent almost 5 years with a Xiaomi Mi 8 that unfortunately died on my mid-year vacation in 2023, it drowned in a pool, lol, and after that, I was forced to switch to a Xiaomi Redmi Note 12 (the worst cellphone of my life). When I started looking for options I found out the Pixel had almost all the features I was looking for in a replacement for my Mi 8 (fluid system, good camera, compact, elegant, among many others). The only downside I can say about this phone is maybe the battery, even though gets to complete the day, sometimes it can be a bit short, and also the “quick charge” is not top-notch for the price we paid, and that is disappointing. After that, I’m super super happy with my Pixel 8!

    Great phone, Disappointing fingerprint reader

    coming from Pixel 5 is definitely a huge upgrade for me especially the screen refresh rate, app smoothness, speaker (Pixel 5 speaker basically a thrash) and Camera. The only thing i feel like a downgrade in this phone is the under display fingerprint read, it’s very slow and sometime it does not even detect my finger. Luckily the face unlock is fast and reliable even under low light situation and can be use on banking app.Overall i am verry satisfied with my Pixel 8

    Google does it again!

    I bought this phone after using the pixel 3 XL for 4 years. Honestly, the pixel 3 would have lasted me even longer but I figured it was time for an update. And I have been very happy with my choice to stay in the Pixel ecosystem. The pixel 8 has improved upon a lot and has some very neat features. You can incorporate AI into your phone, making life more convenient. You can use AI to generate wallpapers, correct grammar, and even guess which app you were going to use when it puts it on the homepage. This phone makes my life easier and simple and the assistant is great. The camera is also amazing! I love that it lets you reply to messages from the notification. I can Google businesses in the phone app and it automatically looks up the number for me (which blew my dad’s mind!). The text-to-speech is amazing and even adds punctuation by detecting the inflections in your voice. So you really can just talk like I’m doing now haha. The swipe gestures take a little getting used to, but they are very nice when you finally do get used to them because you don’t have to worry about clicking a specific button. Only downside is I’m not a big fan of the fact that the camera sticks out. Probably Google can correct that in their next versions of the pixel phone. Thanks Google for making such a great phone!

    Camera not as great as expected

    Overall I’m pretty happy, don’t regret purchase. Positives – it’s one of the few reasonably sized smaller phones, camera general use is pretty good, I love the clean android interface, screen is great, sound quality is great, snappy in use, GPS and network reception solid, even in South Africa where we have different bands to the US. Negatives noted after couple weeks use: battery life is mediocre at best and will be run down in less than a day of very heavy use. The back gets pretty hot in use, which also suggests that the processor suffers from the same high heating issues and possible lower efficiency as previous model when compared to Qualcomm Snapdragon 8. I HATE that the camera doesn’t have manual focus, especially for macro – i specifically got it because of that mode and it’s basically near impossible to use or nail focus. Macro mode also cuts the image right down in size, making it appear to be doing more magnification but actually just digital zooming, and unfortunately the raw file is also cut down. The Jpegs are ridiculously oversharpened and when you look at the raw image the image is really not great – very soft and blurry – apparently even when focus is correct. And when you use another app camera that does have manual focus (like Lightroom), the close focus mode is not available. It seems ridiculous and frustrating that the Pixel 8 does not get the camera app Pro Controls option that the 8 Pro has – this is just software difference to help justify price difference, and it REALLY limits the otherwise excellent main camera of the pixel 8. There seems to be no way to adjust auto jpg sharpening and colour, and the results are way overcooked for my taste – oversharpened and over-saturated.

    The most disappointing phone I have ever purchased

    I really, really wanted to love this phone but honestly, having experienced both, Samsung does Android better than Google does which is pretty sad.I’m coming from an S20 so much of my review will be in comparison to that.Pros- Screen is very bright- Face unlock is very good- The glossy back is beautiful and not such a dramatic slip-hazard or fingerprint magnet as online video reviewers make it out to be.- That’s it. Seriously.Cons (brace yourself)- Absolutely no idea how they managed this, but there is not even half the customisation ability as Samsung’s version of Android and the stock Android experience is uglier and less logical than Samsung’s version of it.I cannot express this enough, it’s unbelievably irritating. Things you could change on a Samsung you’re stuck with on the Pixel and many of these things look ugly or make things inconvenient. For example, want to quickly turn on/off mobile data? You can’t with a easy button in the quick settings panel, you need now open a submenu called ‘internet’. Want to change your quick settings tab colour to anything other than black? Too bad. Want to quickly switch your phone to vibrate? There’s no quick setting for that either, it’s a 3 step process now….You can’t get rid of their mostly-useless ‘at a glance’ widget or even move it anywhere.- Entire UI on the default launcher is almost deliberately unintuitive and clunky. To change the brightness you have to swipe down twice, whereas it’s right at the top with a single swipe on other phones. Just imagine the most logical place you’d expect something to work, and it’ll be the exact opposite on this phone. e.g. do you want to clear all the recent apps? It won’t be on a convenient button as soon as you press the recent apps navigation button, no, instead you have to swipe aaaaaaaall the way to the left through the 20 or 30 or so apps you may have opened and then the ‘clear all’ button will be at the end of the list. Seriously, has anyone who designed this launcher spent even 10 seconds thinking about any of these things before they implemented it???- The only option for a torch shortcut function is to double-tap the back of the phone…. it’s exactly as reliable as you’d imagine – so absolutely terrible – the action you need to do leaves you teetering your phone in your hand so it’s a huge drop risk and it actually responding to those taps only works 10% of the time at best so you just end up hitting your phone like a nutcase trying to get your torch to turn on. Samsung lets you double-press the power button – how much simpler and more logical is that?!- Battery doesn’t have a charge limit feature like Samsung and other brands do. Instead it uses ‘adaptive charging that forces your phone to charge suuuuuuper slowly when it thinks it’s appropriate to e.g. in the evenings so that it’s only fully charged by morning. Fine, except if you plan on topping up before you go out, you have to keep snoozing the function. If you happen to forget to snooze it, you’ll come to grab your phone after an hour of sitting on charge and find it having gained only 5%…. brilliant, thanks Google… I would rather my phone charge super fast and stop at 90%. Give us the option at least. If I put my phone on charge I want it charged ASAP so it’s ready to use when I need it. What’s the point of rapid charging if it hardly uses it.- Basically the exact same dimensions as a Samsung S20 except for thickness and weight. Those differences are noticeable though as this thing feels like a brick in the hand. Feels very thick and very heavy whereas the S20 or even S20FE feels super sleek and light in comparison.- Despite the extra thickness and weight, the Pixel 8 is objectively worse spec’d and featured than many other flagships on the market, even some older phones. It doesn’t even have a dual-SIM – I knew this before purchasing but it’s standard on many flagships and laughably even mid-range phones have this so be aware of that if you intend to use this for work.- The screen has a nice subtle roundoff at the edges….that leads straight into a pointy raised metal lip of the chassis the whole way around. It feels sharp and unpleasant to swipe off the edge of the screen in any direction. It’s already accumulating dust and I imagine it will get gross over time because it’s nearly impossible to clean properly. It’s such a large lip I can literally pull the phone along the table with my fingernail using just that edge.- The camera visor edges are also very sharp and can be uncomfortable depending on how you hold it, and when gaming. They are also easily scratched with how it sits on the very edge of the visor on the table.- The camera is missing a whole tonne of features qnd settings that again, are present on other phones. It doesn’t even have an anti-flicker correction so videos with LED lighting in them will look like you’re at a rave…The quality is also decidedly average, night mode is significantly worse than Samsung’s and barely an improvement over regular mode. They have a night mode for video but software lock that to the Pixel 8 Pro just to make the 8 Pro more desireable. Why should 8 Standard owners get less features when it can handle the software just fine???- Thick bezels around the screen edges. Nothing major but most phones have managed near edge-to-edge screens 6 years ago… These bezels are actually slightly wider than my HTC One from a decade ago.- Doing intensive tasks or asking much of it will get it hot. It also freezes and becomes unresponsive while doing average things like browsing Chrome. It’ll suddenly freeze for a solid 10 seconds for no reason.- Every time you enter your PIN you have to manually press “Enter”. Coming from a Samsung you just typed your PIN and it unlocks instantly. This may not matter to most but it’s a minor annoyance and adds seriously minimal additional security.- The alternative is the fingerprint sensor which flashes this large, insanely bright dot to illuminate your finger which if your finger is even slightly not covering the sensor will flash you with the power of 1000 suns which is the absolute worst at night. It’s also not very reliable in the first place, the face ID is significantly better.- The only SMS app is Google’s intrusive one which switched RCS on despite me specifically chosing not to.- Google’s phone app is clunky and unintuitive. There’s no way to make the default page the dialer instead of your contacts list.- Notifications in the main notification tab don’t even use the whole screen real estate even when in landscape. The whole screen is filled with the tab background but the notification itself remains the same width as in portrait which ends up looking like a novice wrote the code for the UI.- Always-On homescreen minimises the huge clock numbers if you have notifications come in…or it’s supposed to. This works about 50% of the time so you end up having to wake the phone to check for new notifications anyway.- No ‘routines’ function like Samsung has where it will automatically switch certain settings on based on a GPS perimeter e.g. arriving at work will put your phone on vibrate, switch the background and change other settings – don’t expect that here, logically of course, the makers of Android give you LESS features in their flagship device running their own flagship software. Thank you, very cool.I’m sorry if this sounds like a rant or like I’m fanboying over Samsung. I seriously wanted to like this phone and was so excited for a flagship compact phone, but I’m going to tell it how it is, I don’t care about the brand I care about a phone being worth the money we pay for it and this has been a thoroughly disappointing experience. It’s like the software was designed by someone who’s never used a smartphone in their life which is utterly baffling for the company that MAKES Android. This should be the epitome of the Android experience but that title goes squarely to Samsung.If you’re a Samsung user I think you would have a very good chance of being disappointed if you upgrade to this. You are literally losing features and functionality for absolutely no reason. It’s genuinely not any better than the A34 I use for work and that’s half the cost. If you’re an iPhone user, or someone who’s a basic user that doesn’t do anything other than browse Facebook, Chrome and make calls, you’ll be fine. It’s probably closer to an iPhone experience than it is to a version of Android from any of the other manufacturers.If I experience the shutdowns and freezing any more than I already am, I will be returning this because it’s the topping ontop of a totally average phone.In summary the phone is average. It’ll do its job and nothing more and it’s definitely not worth the price. It doesn’t hold a candle to the other flagships and Google’s software-limiting of certain features to the Pro for no reason other than to split the product tiers is incredibly disappointing too. This is the first Pixel phone I’ve ever bought and without a doubt the last I will ever buy. A thouroughly rubbish experience.Considering the phone is physically subpar spec’d compared to the competition of compact phones like the Zenfone 10, Xiaomi 14, Sony 5V or even the now older Samsung S23 I would highly recommend looking at competitors’ offerings before buying a Pixel 8. In fact I would just say buy a Samsung and enjoy your purchase. The Pixel 8 should be very last on your list.

    Pixel8 “Like New” was a bargain

    It was time to by another phone, and this time as always, I was tempted to jump from Samsung to an iPhone just to have a change. I have always used multiple vendors and operating systems – Apple, Samsung/Android, ChromeBook, Windows, iPad and MacMini. I knew I needed I needed 256GB of disk space. Paying over $1150 for a 256 GB iPhone15 just seemed silly when all the Pixel8 reviews were close to iPhone performance. On Amazon I saw a “Like New” (ie, returned) unlocked Pixel 8 that was discounted $140.00 and guaranteed to “look and perform like a new phone”. With the 30-day return policy I took the plunge – and so glad I did! The original box had been opened, but the phone arrived in perfect condition as promised. It immediately changed to 100% and flipping my phone number and importing data was quick and easy with no visits to the T-Mobile store. Feeling smart and happy!
